Meghan Markle Not Included On British Vogue’s Latest List of “Iconic” Women

The recent buzz around British Vogue's cover featuring 40 “iconic” women has sparked criticism, especially among liberal women. As figures like Oprah Winfrey, Laverne Cox, Miley Cyrus, Jane Fonda, and countless other progressive darlings adorned the cover, Meghan Markle's absence was noted, especially given her previous ties to the magazine.

Speculations abound, mostly built on flimsy accusations of racism, but a more plausible explanation might be her decreasing popularity among Brits and Americans alike.

Uniquely Unlikable

Quite a few magazines and media outlets have tried to champion Markle as a symbol of progressive values and female empowerment, but, for many, her drama-filled trajectory from Hollywood actress to British royalty is too fraught with petty conflicts, entitlement, and self-styled victimhood to find her inspiring. Names like Amber Heard, Jada Smith, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez come to mind alongside Meghan Markle–other individuals skilled at using victimhood as a public relations strategy. 

The controversy surrounding Markle's absence from the Vogue cover underscores the growing demands within leftwing circles, where identity politics and personal affiliations influence every fact of life. For liberal women in particular, Markle represents resistance against power structures and tradition, but, for the rest of us, she represents the most annoying aspects of celebrity life.

Other women featured on the cover include The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy, singer Rina Sawayama, fashion model Christy Turlington, TV presenter and actress Jameela Jamil, and former tennis player Serena Williams, among many others.
